Here Are The Starbucks Copycat Recipes You've Been Waiting For

There are some events that might improve your day: A nice text from an old friend, a rainbow just after a downpour, the smile of a passing stranger. However, one thing that's practically guaranteed to make your day better, even when it's been downright bad? A trip to Starbucks. The well-known coffee chain offers a variety of coffee drinks in addition to a wealth of other beverages. But Starbucks doesn't just have drinks, there's also a wide variety of both sweet and savory food on the menu. That makes it the perfect place to stop by when you're on your way to work or school or just want to satisfy a craving.

When you can't be bothered to use the Starbucks drive-thru or actually step foot inside the café — or if you're just hoping to save some money — you'll be thrilled to know that you can make many of your favorite Starbucks treats for yourself. Our round-up of copycat Starbucks recipes includes so many favorites: Pumpkin Bread, the Pink Drink, a Hibiscus Refresher, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Cake Pops, and more. 

1. Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

It's one of the chain's most well-known drinks and every year it appears as the official kick-off to the fall season. Making Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes at home is a win on several fronts: You'll save some money, you can adjust the amounts of pumpkin spice and whipped cream to your exact liking, and you can easily switch between enjoying the drink hot or cold. If you have five minutes, you can totally do this!

2. Copycat Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

Starbucks' Refreshers drinks are made with various fruits and juices, plus green coffee bean extract to give you a little boost. Try this homemade Refresher recipe from Jaime Bachtell-Shelbert, with sweet hibiscus petals and blackberries. Look for dried hibiscus and green coffee bean powder from local or online sellers: Because you only need a small amount of these ingredients, the purchase will see you through many batches of Refresher drinks.

6. Copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf

If you're into citrus, you've probably enjoyed a slice of Starbucks' Lemon Loaf. It's tender, light, and loaded with lemony flavor. The quick bread is so easy to make, and gets topped with a simple lemon juice drizzle. This from-scratch loaf has another bonus: It's healthier! While Starbucks slices have 470 calories per serving, ours has 322. We'll definitely say yes to a guilt-free version of our favorite breakfast treat!

Enjoy a cheery bunch of Starbucks cake pops at home, with the same pink candy shell and white non-pareils. Plus, they taste way better, because you start with fresh, easy-to-make cake.

10. Copycat Starbucks Impossible Breakfast Sandwich

No doubt one of the reasons we like to head to Starbucks is the convenience of getting a speedy bite in the morning, like the Impossible Breakfast Sandwich. Recipe developer Kristen Carli shows you how easily you can assemble similar, make-ahead breakfast sandwiches at home. They're a fast option for busy mornings, and a money saver, too. Store the premade plant-based sandwiches in the fridge, and warm them up in the microwave. They're also a great option for after-school snacks.

11. Copycat Starbucks Toasted White Chocolate Mocha

The Starbucks menu says its espresso-based White Chocolate Mocha includes white chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Um, yes please! And for those times when you're craving one at home, this copycat recipe is just the ticket. Melt white chocolate chips with warmed dulce de leche sauce, then combine this with espresso (freshly pulled or instant) and steamed milk. Add mounds of whipped cream and don't forget your favorite sprinkles.

12. Frappuccino

Can you believe that Starbucks Frappuccinos have been around for over 25 years now? The blend of coffee, ice, and milk gave the chain a huge boost in sales and inspired countless popular Frappuccino flavors and copycats. We love making our own Frappuccinos at home: Just add ice, espresso powder, sugar, and milk to a blender. If you'd prefer you can also substitute chilled espresso or plant-based milks, or add toppings like whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel.

13. Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites

Inspired by the sous vide-cooked egg bites from Starbucks, recipe developer Molly Allen created an at-home version that you can whip up and keep on hand for busy mornings. No sous vide equipment is required here: These little bites bake up in a mini muffin pan. Ingredients in the batter like cottage cheese and shredded cheese ensure that the egg bites are moist and melty. Add diced ham, chopped bacon, or vegan sausage crumbles, as well as your favorite diced veggies.

14. Copycat Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino

The next time you have Oreo cookies in the house, set aside a bunch to make these super-chocolaty mocha coffee drinks. Our copycat riff on Starbucks' drink is as much a dessert as a pick-me-up. You only have to do one thing in advance here: Make ice cubes using instant or fresh-brewed coffee. Once these are ready in your freezer, you can blend up this Frappuccino anytime. The recipe makes three drinks, so invite some friends to join you!

15. Copycat Starbucks Ham & Swiss Panini

It's so simple, and yet this is one of our favorite grab-and-go meals for a savory breakfast or a light lunch. Since this panini takes only 15 minutes from start to finish, there's no reason not to make them at home. Pick up a package of flat panini bread at the store (or if you like to bake, make your own) along with ham, Swiss cheese, and mustard. Don't have a panini press? Grill it on the stove with a cast iron skillet on top of the sandwich to help it flatten.

16. Copycat Starbucks Pink Drink

The fan-created Pink Drink took social media by storm in 2016, and became so popular that Starbucks added the rosy beverage to its regular menu a year later. The secret ingredient is sweetened coconut milk, and our copycat version makes the drink even more lovely with lots of sliced strawberries. Make sure your tea, coconut milk, and juice are nice and cold before you start, then you'll have enough to make four Pink Drinks. Enjoy them throughout the week or share them with friends.

17. Copycat Starbucks Banana Bread

We won't judge you for grabbing slices of Starbucks' banana bread: You're right there, you have the coffee, and slices of that thick, tender bread in the bakery case are calling your name. Just promise that you'll give this copycat recipe a try, because once you see how easy it is to make banana bread at home, you'll be baking a loaf every week. The recipe includes chopped walnuts, but you can also try different nuts, chocolate chips, or even add in dried fruit.

18. Copycat Starbucks Bacon, Sausage, and Egg Wrap

Make this filling wrap in the morning before you leave (it only takes 20 minutes) or make several in advance for an easy, reheatable breakfast option. Flour tortillas are filled with egg, bacon, sausage, and tender cubes of potato, and a sprinkle of cheese inside makes the filling wonderfully melty. It's a delicious savory breakfast or after-school snack that you can customize: Try substitutions like plant-based meats and eggs, cubes of sweet potato, or add in veggies like diced onion, spinach leaves, or sliced jalapeños.

19. Copycat Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

When Starbucks intrigued fans with its limited edition Unicorn Frappuccino in 2016 to capitalize on the trend of unicorn-themed everything, the chain's poor baristas were overrun by demands for the sparkly, swirly drink. Starbucks employees probably don't miss this one at all — but if you do, you'll be thrilled with this copycat version. The Frappuccino is a pink blend of mango and vanilla ice cream, but the real treat is the colorful, white chocolate-sour drizzle made with Fun Dip candies. It's great to make with friends or kids.

20. Copycat Starbucks Bacon, Cheddar, and Egg Sandwich

Breakfast sandwiches have become one of the most popular morning meal choices in the U.S.: They're delicious, filling, and easy to eat on the go. No wonder Starbucks fans love to grab the chain's bacon and egg breakfast sandwich on busy mornings. We bet you can guess what we're about to share: They're easy to make at home, and take only 20 minutes. Look for croissant buns at the store, or use bagels or English muffins instead.

21. Copycat Starbucks Holiday Spice Flat White

Spices like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg are so inextricably linked with the wintry holiday months that we forget that this spice blend is delicious and comforting any time of the year. So even though the Holiday Spice Flat White (which isn't a latte) may have disappeared from the Starbucks menu, you can still make your own at home. Just blend the spices into instant espresso (or add them to the coffee of your choice) and top it with frothed milk. Dust each mug with a little cinnamon or nutmeg, and enjoy.

22. Copycat Starbucks Southwest Veggie Wrap

This item on the Starbucks menu offers a meat-free and spicy option for breakfast or lunch. You'll love making your own, though, because the wraps will be so much more fresh and flavorful. Use salsa-flavored tortillas, or other types like whole wheat or jalapeño, and fill it with black beans, scrambled eggs, and cotija cheese. Jalapeño cream cheese and salsa give the wraps just as much heat as you'd like. The recipe makes six wraps to feed a crowd or to prepare you for the week ahead.

23. Copycat Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino

It doesn't get much more indulgent than this copycat version of Starbucks' frosty Frappuccino. Just blend your favorite brewed coffee (cold, of course) with ice and plenty of caramel syrup. More caramel in the glass plus whipped cream and caramel on top and you have a really delicious cold coffee drink. Starbucks recommends trying this drink with a shot of espresso poured over the top — give this variation a try at home!
